I have a 500 GB file that I plan on backing up remotely. The file changes often. I'll be rsyncing it from a desktop to a server. Both can run rsync client or server.
What is the proper command for this? The ones I've tried sofar has been taking forever or simply acted strange.
Example and results:
rsync -cv --partial --inplace --no-whole-file /desktop/file1 myserver.com::module/file1
Seems to work, but only if I do it twice (?!). Also, slow.
Does the above command do the checksumming on both computers, or only on the sending one? Is it correct otherwise?
